One thing not mentioned yet is Graham's back pain. Nothing serious at the moment but I had him on a team last year and had to pay attention at the end of the year as to whether he would play through the back pain or take a week off. Now, this year, once again the back trouble emerges. I love the guy's potential but I'm concerned with his repeated back issues. Could be a red flag as he gets older.

No word on injured New Orleans Saints Jimmy Graham and Jabari Greer 10/08/12 11:52AM Subscribe to Post Flag Post Nakia Hogan, The Times-Picayune
A day after New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and cornerback Jabari Greer left Sunday night's 31-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers early, Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer shed very little light on the injuries.

Kromer said both Graham, who suffered a right ankle injury and left the postgame locker room with his foot in a walking boot, and Greer, who aggravated a groin injury that required sports hernia surgery in training camp, were being evaluated Monday morning.
Kromer said he didn't have an update on either. But he did say he doesn't expect Greer's injury to be major, and he expects Greer to return in time for the Saints' next game Oct. 21 at Tampa Bay.

At this point they aren't saying, have to wait and see how he is at practice this week:
While Kromer wouldn't divulge the status of injured cornerback Jabari Greer (groin), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), linebacker David Hawthorne (hamstring), receiver Lance Moore (hamstring) defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) and running back Travaris Cadet (shoulder), the players said the extra time could only help.
"According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there's "not a lot of optimism" about Jimmy Graham's (ankle) Week 7 status. The sprain Graham sustained in Week 5 is more severe than the Saints have let on. It could be a high-ankle sprain. Remember that Aaron Hernandez needed three full weeks off to recover from his high-ankle sprain before returning for limited snaps last week. Graham's injury didn't appear to be quite that serious, but owners should be securing other Week 7 options immediately."
Interim coach Joe Vitt believes Jimmy Graham (ankle) has a chance to be "full go" in Wednesday's practice. The news keeps getting better for Graham's Sunday night outlook at Denver. Barring a surprising setback, Graham will rejoin the starting lineup against a Broncos defense allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Oct 23 - 4:39 PM Source: Associated Press
